contain documents and information is an outstanding
057. Sex and War : How Biology Explains Warfare
and Terrorism and Offers a Path to a Safer World,
by Malcolm Potts, Thomas Hayden
Excerpts from the first few pages of the book:
"... This book is about war. It is about terror, and
cruelty, and the biological origins and long, brutal,
vicious, and destructive history of organized agres-
sion. Perhaps most importantly, it is about not just
the depths to which human beings can sink, but
also how we came to be this way and what we
can do about it.
We will show that killing other members of our own
species -- a rarity in the animal kingdom -- is a male
behavior that evolved early in our history, because
those individuals who manifested such a predisposi-
tion were more likely to transmit their genes to the
next generation than those who didn't. War and vio-
lence, then, are indelibly linked to sex and reproduc-
In the pages that come, we will show that for most
of history and prehistory, small groups of men who
were prepared to attack their neighbors and steal
their resources, and who could seduce or coerce
women for sex, ended up having more offspring.
Women, meanwhile, were more likely to improve
their reproductive successs -- to have more chil-
dren survive to reproduce themselves -- by aligning
themselves with successfully violent men rather than
by joining raids and risking death themselves. ...
... there are biological reasons why men often strive
to control women's reproduction, and rape during
wartime -- a disturbingly common phenomenon --
may be an extreme example of that tendency. ..."
056. A Natural History of Rape : Biological
Bases of Sexual Coercion, by Randy Thornhill,
Craig T. Palmer
"... Evolutionary psychology often stomps where
other branches of science fear to tread. Case in
point: A Natural History of Rape. Randy Thornhill,
a biologist, and Craig T. Palmer, an anthropologist,
have attempted to apply evolutionary principles to
[rape] and the result is a guaranteed storm of media
hype and debate.
The book's central argument is that rape is a genetic-
ally developed strategy sustained over generations
of human life because it is a kind of sexual selection
-- a successful reproductive strategy. This runs dir-
ectly counter to the prevailing notion -- that rape is
predominantly about violent power, and only secon-
darily about sex. ... the authors suggest that all young
men be educated frankly about their (theoretical) gen-
etic desire to rape.
... Thornhill ... and ... Palmer ... contend in this already
highly controversial book that prevailing explanations
of why men rape and how we can prevent them rely
on wrong, dangerous and outmoded dogma. The right
explanations for rape, they contend, as for all other
human behavior, rely on Darwinian models of natural
Rapists want sex, they say. Rape, or the drive to rape,
is an adaptation: some of our ancestors increased their
reproductive success by mating with unwilling partners,
and the brain-wiring that led them to do so got passed
on to their male descendants. ... What we call rape
happens in most if not all cultures; nonhuman primates
rape, too. ..."

052. Women Loving Women : Appreciating and
Exploring the Beauty of Erotic Female Encounters,
by Jamye Waxman
"... Women Loving Women explores the phenomenon
of the contemporary 'bi-sexual' or 'lesbian' experience
for the heterosexual woman. However, while women
loving women is indeed an emerging trend, it is also an
age-old obsession that this book also addresses and
places in a historical perspective.
The book investigates the reasons modern women are
more open to same-sex encounters, how these exper-
iences can connect people and help them grow, and
how regardless of one's sexual orientation, there is
much to learn here about the nature of love, sex, and
physical attraction and its unconscious determinants.
In addition, Women Loving Women also responds to
how these same-sex encounters are less apt to create
conflict in their heterosexual relationships, and actually
might spice things up with their male partner (many
men fantasize about same-sex women relationships) ...
features sophisticated photographs that will capture
the warm and enlightening approach of exploring
erotic possibilities with other women ..."

vulvas in the foreground, so large and close-up that

043. Wikipedia (The Free Encyclopedia)
Sex and Human Sexuality, by User Contributions
In biology, sex is a process of combining and
mixing genetic traits, often resulting in the speciali-
zation of organisms into a male or female variety
(known as a sex). Sexual reproduction involves
combining specialized cells (gametes) to form off-
spring that inherit traits from both parents.
... An organism's sex is defined by the gametes it
produces: males produce male gametes (sperma-
tozoa, or sperm) while females produce female
gametes (ova, or egg cells); individual organisms
which produce both male and female gametes are
termed hermaphroditic. ...
Human sexuality is how people experience the
erotic and express themselves as sexual beings.
Frequently driven by the desire for sexual pleasure,
human sexuality has biological, physical and emo-
Biologically, it refers to the reproductive mechan-
ism as well as the basic biological drive that exists
in all species and can encompass sexual intercourse
and sexual contact in all its forms. Emotional aspects
deal with the intense emotions relating to sexual acts
and associated social bonds. ... "

by Cheryl Rilly
"... The history of sex and all things sexual! Where
topless dancers, stripteases, contraceptives, sex
toys, dirty books, sex symbols, experts who tell
us how to get it up or keep it down, and four-letter
words abound, not only in the 20th century but in
mankind's most ancient cultures.
Because of the many outlets the media has taken,
sex is more 'in your face' than ever before. But,
I promise you, we have invented nothing. And
most of the time our ancestors did things with
much more gusto than we do. When was the

vampire enthralls every lesbian she meets -- and any-
one else who happens to catch a glimpse of folklore's
quintessential bad girl. In fact, the lesbian vampire is
so terrifying and seductively wicked, so powerfully
ancient and alluring, that even vampire buffs have
tried to keep her under wraps. ..."
032. Daughters of Darkness : Lesbian Vampire
Stories, by Pam Keesey (Editor)
"... In the fascinating, scholarly introduction to these
10 tales, editor Keesey examines the role of women,
especially lesbians, in vampire lore. She traces her
own interest to the 1970s -- 'the golden age of lesbian
vampire movies' -- and pursues her quarry throughout
literature, postulating that its origin might lie in tradi-
tions as old as the Bible. Discovering traditional char-
acteristics of the female vampire, she concludes that
the lesbian may be the skeleton-in-the-closet of vam-
pire lore. ..."

by Diana McLellan
"... Diana McLellan's witty and penetrating study of
the golden age of Hollywood sapphism will delight
the armchair detective as well as the lavender movie
Thanks to McLellan's obsessive sleuthing, The Girls
offers not only the most detailed biography of Mer-
cedes de Acosta, seducer of the stars, but provides
tantalizing evidence of an early affair in Germany
between Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo, women
who in later life claimed never to have met.
Much of the book is devoted to Garbo -- another
sign of the author's good taste -- and revelations
abound. Sadly, the golden age gave way to Mc-
Carthyism. Even the 'gayest' of Hollywood lesbians
retreated into the closet, or, like de Acosta, left for

Weimar Berlin, by Mel Gordon

by Marquis de Sade, Richard Seaver (Editor),
Pierre Klossowski (Introduction)
"... De Sade took a dull bladed knife, his pen and
carved right into the heart of and soul of human
sexuality. We would like to believe that sex is
making love, toasting wine after, champagne
bubble baths, but De Sade reduced it to what it
really is, a physical act that goes beyond our
intelligence, reducing us to the same bestial level
as the beast that prowl this Earth.

universal subjects as love, sex, and death in poetry

day readers will enjoy. ..."
007. The Decameron, by Giovanni Boccaccio
"... If you read Chaucer's Cantebury Tales and
found it twisted and amusing, this books is even
better. A loose (in more ways than one) collection
of 100 tales, this book was written to keep Italian
maidens entertained during the Renaissance. ...
This book is also loaded with rather bawdy if not
outright shameless tales. Do not be mistaken by
the literary merit of this masterpiece! It is indeed
rather naughty, while something you could read
for an English class. I suggest not trying to read
the whole thing like I did (it took me a whole

debasement and severe sexual and psychological

But for over seven years, the Frenchman dreamed
of taking pictures of ordinary women in the same
luxurious style as fashion nudes. So he began shoot-

The result, Nu, is startling because of Aufray's whis-
per-soft technique, because of the way he brings out
poignant beauty that is lost in everyday goings-on,
and because, most of all, he encouraged his models
to create their own poses. This romantic portraiture
enterprise represents French sensuality at its most
